This is a magnificent large antique oil on canvas painting of Flora, after the Renaissance Italian painter, Titian (1488/90 -1576), circa 1850 in date.

 
Exactly as in the original painting which is currently displayed at the Galleria Uffizi in Florence, a young woman, Flora, emerges from the background of the painting holding out a bunch of flowers - violets, rosebuds and jasmines - in her right hand. She is dressed in ancient style, with a bright white robe that slides down over her right shoulder, offering a glimpse of her breast, while her head gently rests on her left shoulder as she gazes to the side.
 
The contrast between the white robe of the woman and the darkness that surrounds her tends to draw the spectator's eye to her adorable and likeable face, which is characterised by luminous pale skin, pink cheeks and a face framed by loose long copper blonde hair - this was the typical hair colour of women painted by Titian. 
 
It is housed within a stunning and highly elaborate Italian Florentine  gilded scrolling foliate frame. 
 
The frame is inscribed verso with 'Copy of the Original at the Galleria Uffizi, Firenze' bearing the wax seal mark of the Uffizi Gallery, making it an officialy sanctioned copy of the Titian painting. 
 
Add this splendid antique painting to a very special wall in your home.

Tiziano Vecelli or Vecellio ( c. 1488/90 – 27 August 1576),known in English as Titian, was an Italian painter during the Renaissance, considered the most important member of the 16th-century Venetian school. He was born in Pieve di Cadore, near Belluno, (then in the Republic of Venice). During his lifetime he was often called da Cadore, 'from Cadore', taken from his native region.
Recognized by his contemporaries as "The Sun Amidst Small Stars" (recalling the final line of Dante's Paradiso), Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally adept with portraits, landscape backgrounds, and mythological and religious subjects. His painting methods, particularly in the application and use of colour, exercised a profound influence not only on painters of the late Italian Renaissance but on future generations of Western art.
His career was successful from the start, and he became sought after by patrons, initially from Venice and its possessions, then joined by the north Italian princes, and finally the Habsburgs and papacy. Along with Giorgione, he is considered a founder of the Venetian School of Italian Renaissance painting.
During his long life, Titian's artistic manner changed drastically, but he retained a lifelong interest in colour. Although his mature works may not contain the vivid, luminous tints of his early pieces, their loose brushwork and subtlety of tone were without precedent in the history of Western painting.
